SOLD 714 Topeka Blvd San Antonio, TX 78210

I love looking and selling historic homes. They just do not make them like they used to! Features such as hardwood floors, high ceilings, and built-in ironing boards are some of my favorite characteristics in older homes. Check out this 2 bedroom, 1 bath home in the charming Highland Park neighborhood. It was built in the 1940’s.

What do you think of historic homes?

SETH 5 Star Advantage Program

For home buyers, there are many programs available to help with the down payment. I have recently come across an exciting program called the SETH 5 Star Advantage. This grant allows up to 5% of the sales price. Like many programs, there are income and credit score guidelines to qualify. Check out senior loan officer, Rae Saldaña, as she explains the details.

So far, I have had 2 buyers use this program with positive results. Hope to have many more in the future! Let me know if you have any questions.

Pearsall Park Dog Park

I recently found out that there are 5 dog parks in San Antonio. I gave myself the personal challenge of visiting each one to see which one Toby & Roxy liked best. Today, we ventured to the city’s southwest part of town and visited Pearsall Park. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. The sun was out but the cool breeze made it super comfortable to be outside. The park was clean and there were dogs of all shapes and sizes enjoying themselves with their owners. Roxy doesn’t always get along with other dogs so only Toby got to enjoy the park today. He had a blast. Dogs are so easy to please.
